RETREAT: From Bracing to Embracing
Change and Loss

6 April, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm UTC+2

9 for 9:30 - 4pm

This Autumn daylong retreat, held in a nurturing atmosphere of contemplative silence at this beautiful venue near Stellenbosch, is an opportunity to explore the universal theme of change and loss. Living with the truth of Impermanence is a central foundation within Buddhist wisdom. We will draw on the inspiring teachings of Frank Ostaseski's Five Invitations to discover ways to engage more wholeheartedly with ourselves, so that we can equip ourselves to embrace change and loss with greater courage and compassion.

The day is held in Noble Silence and includes Dharma teachings, guided meditations in all postures, as well as qigong movement meditation, which will enhance our awareness of the body through connecting with the elements. A delicious vegetarian/vegan lunch, as well as teas, will be savoured in silence, as part of our integrated practice.

CPD accreditation for psychologists and other HPCSA registered professionals: 5 General CEUs to be confirmed.

Please Note: To receive CPD points and your certificate(s) this year, there is an annual admin fee of R175 - thank you.
